Floods – the most common disaster and natural hazard in the world, affecting human lives and causing severe economic loss. To minimize the extent of damages caused by flood, warning system should be implemented in high risk areas to warn people.
Our proposed flood monitoring and detection system uses sensor nodes installed in the sensor field for data collection wherein the parameters are transmitted to the surveillance center. The parameter is to detect and monitor the rising water level and forecast any hazards. When the water reaches a critical level the system analysis related risks to trigger alarm.
At the command control center, this data is received, processed and information concerning the flood status is then disseminated to the various stakeholders by alerting them. Furthermore, PertSol’s iAlert can work in tandem to further disseminate the warning to the general population in the influenced geological districts by means of Short Message Service (SMS) or Cell Broadcast CBC or voice messages.
